Psalm 15

1    Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle?  

Who may rest upon your holy hill?

2    Whoever leads an uncorrupt life  

and does the thing that is right;

3    Who speaks the truth from the heart  

and bears no deceit on the tongue;

4    Who does no evil to a friend  

and pours no scorn on a neighbour;

5    In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed,  

but who honours those who fear the Lord.

6    Whoever has sworn to a neighbour  

and never goes back on that word;

7    Who does not lend money in hope of gain,  

nor takes a bribe against the innocent;

8    Whoever does these things  

shall never fall.
